Fatima Bello Dangote, the adoptive daughter of the chairman of Dangote Group and Africa’s wealthiest man, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, has died.
According to The Elites Ng, Fatima, who was also Dangote’s niece, died on Friday, October 2, in a private hospital in the United Kingdom, after a 2-year battle with brain cancer.
Fatima was the daughter of Alhaji Bello Dangote, the billionaire’s younger brother who died in the ill-fated plane crash alongside Ibrahim Abacha in 1996.
Dangote, who acted as her foster father after her father’s death, single-handedly brought her up and trained her through schools.
She was buried in London last week according to Islamic rites.
May her soul rest in peace.
